Notes

Originally recorded by Bo Diddley on 2nd March 1955, his first recording session. This was initially released as the B-side of Bo Diddley 1955 in both the 78rpm and the 45rpm single formats. It was subsequently released in 1967 as a 4" 'hip pocket' single.

Writing credits on records are Ellas McDaniel, real name of Bo Diddley. Often appears incorrectly on recordings and elsewhere as Ellis McDaniels or other variation.

The original release was a chart success. Chess Records wanted to cash in on this success by releasing a similar record. This was accomplished by Muddy Waters recording more or less an identical song, released as Mannish Boy. This was also a chart success. Mannish Boy usually occurs with writing credits shared by Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley.

Mannish Boy is often used as the title on set lists and tapes.
